D3-2000™ is a natural, soy-free, bio-identical vitamin D supplement. Vitamin D, considered both a hormone and a vitamin, is manufactured in response to skin's exposure to sunlight and is essential to the body’s absorption of calcium. Natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is four times more potent than synthetic vitamin D2. In Latin, calciferol means “calcium carrier.” Strong evidence suggests that vitamin D intakes well above current recommendations are beneficial, and when combined with calcium, have a significant impact on overall bone health. Additionally, vitamin D has been the subject of numerous studies for its effect on the immune system by promoting phagocytosis and immunomodulatory functions.
UTI Soothe™ features the simple sugar d-mannose which occurs naturally in cranberries and pineapple. Tiny amounts of d-mannose are metabolized and the remainder is excreted via the urine. As it is flushed from the body, d-mannose coats E. coli so it no longer sticks to urinary tract walls and is washed away with normal urination. This helps to maintain a healthy environment for the urinary tract’s mucosal surface. Since d-mannose is absorbed in the upper gastro-intestinal tract, it does not affect friendly E. coli or other beneficial bacteria normally present in the colon.
